The Golden Ticket: A $50 donation to the Hoop Shoot program could be your ticket to the 50th anniversary National Finals. #hoopshoot50

2022 is a brand-new and bigger-than-ever year for the Hoop Shoot. It marks the Hoop Shoot’s 50th anniversary as a national program, and the Elks intend to deliver a gold-medal National Finals for a golden anniversary.

On April 30, 2022, 72 National Finalists will toe the line at Wintrust Arena, a new state-of-the-art, 10,000-seat facility in downtown Chicago that’s home to the 2021 WNBA Champion Chicago Sky and DePaul University’s Blue Demons. The 2022 Finalists will step up to the same line as some of basketball’s best.

In celebration of this Golden Anniversary, five lucky donors were selected to win a Golden Ticket—a trip for two to the 2022 Elks Hoop Shoot National Finals.

The Golden Ticket includes round-trip airfare for two to Chicago, onsite ground transportation, a two-night stay at the Hilton Chicago, and two complimentary registrations for all public events at the 2022 National Finals.

One winner was selected each month from December to April. Donors not selected in a drawing were eligible for the next drawing(s). The Golden Tickets are non-transferable. If the winner is unable to attend, the Elks National Foundation staff will select a new recipient of the Golden Ticket.

And the winners are...

Bud Newton Bedford, Pa., Lodge No. 1707

Deborah Reedy Jacksonville, Fla., Lodge No. 221

Carla Tappainer Dakota County, Minn., Lodge No. 2832

Ray Alvarez Weymouth-Braintree, Mass., Lodge No. 2232
